HOUSTON – From custodian to educator!

Local elementary school teacher Diane Rodriguez shares her inspiring journey to her own classroom!

Rodriguez, a native of Puerto Rico, will teach Bilingual First Grade at Ehrhardt Elementary starting this 2022-2023 school year.

Rodriguez started as a substitute at the school in 2013 because her daughters attended the school and she wanted to help the kids, families, and communities in her area.

Later, she was a custodian, a teacher assistant, and a workroom/library aid in the same school.
